Dishwashing

Our dishwasher is us. We have a set of rules to determine when to wash them and who does them.

In simple terms:

- the person who doesn't fix breakfast (determined by who gets up second) washes whatever is in the sink at the end of breakfast.

- no-one washes lunch dishes.

- if we eat left-overs for dinner, no-one washes.

- if someone cooks, the other person washes dishes.

Tonight we had the situation where we mixed some left-overs in a frying pan and added something. Two questions: was that cooking? and since we both did something: who cooked? Another question had to do with the fact that when we cook, water is served in glass glasses with ice-cubes and when we eat leftovers the water is served in plastic glasses. Tough decision. I decreed that it was cooking and that Robert was the cook (he was the idea man for this) so I washed the dishes. That will give me less incentive to get up first tomorrow. And we had water in glass glasses, but I compromised and only put in 2 ice-cubes instead of the normal 3 since the cooking was done using left-overs. I did wash all the dishes.

Some readers know that we have some archaic rules such as I wash dishes when we use the first floor kitchen and Robert does them when we use the second floor kitchen. I made up this rule of course since we don't have a first floor kitchen. There are several slips of paper lying around with rules like this although I don't know where they are - hmm, I wonder why?
